I Am But a Man

I am but a man, just a man, human still. I live and breathe. I do good and bad. Sometimes one more than the other.


I am but a man.
Just a man, human still.
I live and breathe.
I do good and bad.
Sometimes one more,
Than the other.

For after all I am, but a man.
On the average, not the mean.
The good I do out weighs the bad,
But then there are those days.

For after all I am, but a man.
There are those days, glorious days.
Or so I have been told.
Of grand forgiveness and absolution.

For after all I am but a man.

This was writen reflecting on a particularly bad day I had. It was putting Humty Dumpty back together again. I was imperfect, but not all bad. Not unforgiveable, just imperfect. Yet, there was forgiveness and better days. I chuckle when I read this now as it was written over 10 years ago. It is as true today as it was then. And I thought I was making progress towards perfection....

Exactly Frank, nomatter how silly things we end up doing we realize it always comes down to "after all I'm just a human'

And I totally agree with Melody :)

@Yumnau - Thank you.. true. It is the realization we will make mistakes and do good that provides knowledge that leads to self acceptance and allows one to like, even love, who they have become. After all we are just human.

Blessings
